About the Role

Beiersdorf are a global business who have been helping people to feel good in their skin for over 130 years. By developing innovative skin care brands that help people look, feel and live well. Their three key global brands are NIVEA, Eucerin and La Prairie, expertly tailored products to meet the unique needs of customers.

As a new business win, this is an amazing opportunity to help lead a newly formed team tasked with driving best in class planning campaigns across markets.

The Strategy & Planning department are the champions of planning within the agency. The architects of OMD Design, our end-to-end process, and responsible for its use across the agency. As a result, we are the bridge for most workstreams at OMD, from audience and behavioural insights to communications frameworks, opportunities for innovation, best in class channel execution and cutting-edge measurement.

OMD operates a specialist first structure, meaning that strategists report into other... strategists rather than client services. We believe this ensures our people have the greatest opportunity for growth by being closely connected to their peers and relevant seniors. Obviously, strategists are still assessed against their contribution to client work and collaboration with client teams, meaning they are effectively a member of multiple departments and have to be able to collaborate with all.

In turn you will have the support of a department filled with brilliant thinkers, supported by a leadership team who believe in the value of strategy & planning and its importance within the agency.

The ideal candidate will be a proactive, a problem-solver, who will use a variety of tools, practices, and processes to deliver best compliance and governance for the client.

This is an exciting role on a new client with big importance to the group giving excellent career opportunities and benefits within a high-profile team.
